Formação docente para inclusão de games na educação básica: relato de uma experiência = Training teachers for inclusion of games in basic education: an experience report

Teacher training for media culture is crucial these days, especially as digital media, and particularly electronic games, define and are an integral part of the lives of children and young people inside and outside the school environment.

The results show that, when playing or reflecting in a guided way on electronic games, and sharing practices and reflections with the group, teachers can go beyond the functional user, and begin to understand the different texts and technologies (as direction makers) and understand and think about what was learned in new ways (as critical analysts and transformers).
